I removed some carts from folder .lexaloffle/Voxatron/bbs/0|1|2|3|4|5
but still since those file have number names it's not easy to check what i removed and also splore has categories like :
alpha demos , new , featured , work in progress , collaboration , jam . And in some of them i see a 'load more' .
All those seem too many , i cant find them in my dir structure that i post below:
~/.lexaloffle/Voxatron$ tree -L 1
:~/.lexaloffle/Voxatron/bbs$ tree -L 1
7 directories, 15 files
There is no need to delete those carts since they are only shown to you, not downloaded onto local memory.
Think of it as this;
You're on Amazon, looking for a product. Those products are already displayed to you, but because you haven't decided to buy them yet, you don't actually have the item.
It's similar with the BBS, except you don't buy carts.
You can see the carts, so you can find something to play, but the carts are only downloaded to memory when you start playing.
@wallgraffiti thanks for the explanation.
This (look and download) L&D functionality is suitable maybe to a voxatron game developer ,or a voxatron enthusiast but i think its disorienting , messy and risky(for kids) for a casual user that wants to play a couple of mature titles. (also what about the delete button??). I'd like to have control in my computer.
The UI presentation of L&D is cool indeed.But it's heavily bloated and it shoots at it's foot.
Please please please put a simple setting to disable L&D and start with a two three games.
Interestingly i stumbled upon a similar issue a year ago with supertux. It had accessible from the main menu HUNDREDS of levels !!!.
I delete it them but i couldnt disable the functionality!
Aha... i found sth . i deleted file internal_carts.txt
Now splore is empty as preBingBang universe. Xa!!
And now if a close my internet vox can refresh !! I killed splore's L&D !!
But i killed my internet too!
So now i'll try to download two or three carts only..
As a last touch in linux:
$ cd /home/foouser/.lexaloffle/Voxatron
$ chmod 400 bbs
$ ls -al

And now we can have internent back!! and keep splore on a leash having only ALPHA DEMOS category which are ok games.
Hug arena is one of my favorites.
In the future i wish for the developer to make things more controllable.
I can't believe how you don't get it...
Just because the carts show up in Splore DOES NOT MEAN IT IS DOWNLOADED ON YOUR COMPUTER! Splore just looks at the BBS and fetches the names, authors and labels of the carts. It does not download the carts themselves. It only downloads the game files when you play the game. Your storage is fine. It is not clogging you hard drive with hundreds of games.
It's like using a shopping catalog. You can see all the things you can buy, their names and pictures and stuff. However, you don't instantly have all of these things teleported to your home, do you?
It's like that in Splore. I hope you understand this time, since your level of misunderstanding is driving me insane.
Let’s keep cool heads!
The initial message said: the massive splore makes me dizzy.
I can imagine wanting to use voxatron to load and play your own games, and we don’t have a way to avoid splore for now (unlike pico8, where you have multiple ways), so even if you think the person should not do it, there’s no harm in them writing down ways to do it.
